Is the role of media to ignore stories that don't support the conservative agenda?
Apparently if you are a Trump defender, you can't allow the media to report anything. That is why Trump tweets 24/7 -- to keep his sycophants focused on what he says and of course he tells them all the news outlets are lying. I guess he is not a fan of the 1st amendment. I know he really wants to be Vladimir Putin, but dog-gone, Trumpy, this is the U.S. - you foolish man.

First they created fake news, now its a fake recession? I guess we'll just have to have alternative economics along with alternative news to keep us from getting hornswoggled by the " official experts".
Anyway, keep up the good work, Mr. Trump. But you still have another 5 years in office so don't start resting on your laurels just yet.

Last I read, only 16% of Americans believed in the mainstream media. Nearly everyone knows they are a propaganda machine for the Communists. Weird thing is, if they win, and America becomes Communist, they will be 1st in line to take a bullett to the head. Look back through history. As soon as a Communist takes power, they kill the media off as a first order of business...EVERY time.

So, what are these media boobs thinking? This time it will be different? Good luck with that.

Recession ahead. We can fuss about whose fault it is, but that's where things are headed.

If that wasn't bad enough, Trump's economic brain trust to manage the coming recession "consists of a guy who plays an economist on TV, a crank who has been disowned by the (real) economics profession and the producer of “The Lego Batman Movie.”

This dream team is anchored by National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow, "an affable former CNBC personality." He seems able to communicate to financial markets, but alas, this is rendered moot by Trump’s inability to settle on any consistent message worthy of communicating.

Senior White House aide and trade adviser Peter Navarro, can "not name a single other economist who agreed with his views on trade. More recently, he suggested the Wall Street Journal editorial page sounded communist." You don't say.

Last but certainly not least, there’s Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Whatever the artistic merits of bankrolling movies such as “Suicide Squad” and “The Lego Batman Movie," and having earned "the coveted title of greatest sycophant in Cabinet history" one wonders what relevance this background will bring to "rescuing the world from economic crisis.

The media can't spin a recession. One is going to happen at some point. These things come in cycles and there are factual economic indicators that are pointing towards one (inverted yield curb). Expecting there will never be one is a bit naive. And expecting the media to be quite about it is also naive.

The trade war isn't helping. And we have little wiggle room with interest rates so low now. But it would have happened anyway at some point.

What the media does do is blow things out of proportion a lot and act sensational. I blame it on the 24/7 news cycle where they all feel like they have to out do each other. All that "stock market plunges" news, ugh. It went down 800 points, yeah, that's a big number. Until you realize that it's just 3% and we are set back just a couple of months. It's not like 1987 where it went down 22%.

The Russia narrative has failed and impeachment has stalled, so this is why we're seeing the push by the media and the Democrats of racism and economic failure.

I really hope that the economy just continues to sputter without going into full recession long enough for Trump to lose in 2020. It's going to be an epic disaster if the bottom falls out of this economy beforehand.
